"World Museum" Museums Tip by Airpunk
Museums, Liverpool: 69 reviews and 145 photos
The museum covers a wide range of topics: Natural history (with a focus on dinosaurs), world cultures (focus on Egypt), insects, an aquarium, astronomy, geology and archaeology.
It had its origins in natural history collection from 1851 and was moved to its present location in 1860. Since then, it has been often refurbished and expanded – the last time in 2005. The result is a huge museum with six stories where you can easily spend a whole day. It is one of the favourites with kids and has a lot of activities for the young ones. So expect a high number of kids in here. Also, many topics are rather prepared to be enjoyed by kids than by adults.
Like all of the other National Museums, the world museum has no entry fee (2013). If you are interested in all topics, you can easily spend a whole day in here. A short overview with focus on one topic is possible to be done in two hours.
Directions: In the Northeast of the city centre. Next to Walker Art Gallery and main train station (Lime Street).
